The cold snap of 2014 won't deter several members of the Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) from attending the winter meeting of the Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) in Washington, DC, January 8-10. Steve Kempler, Bruce Vollmer, Gilberto Vicente, Christopher Lynnes, Long Pham, Chun-Lin Shie, and Mo Khayat will be some of the GES DISC staff members at the meeting. In addition, Ana Prados (University of Maryland Baltimore County), who has collaborated on several projects with the GES DISC, be in attendance and will lead several Evaluation Workshop sessions.
The theme of the meeting is "The ESIP Federation: Celebrating 15 Years of Making Data Matter".
Kempler is slated to chair a session entitled Analytics and Data Scientists on the second afternoon of the meeting. Vicente will co-chair a session on the information quality of data on Friday, January 10. Lynnes is the author of a presentation entitled "Use Cases for Granule-level OpenSearch", which is on the schedule of the Granule Discovery and Services session.
Members of the Global Change Master Directory (GCMD) staff, who share the first floor of Goddard Space Flight Center's Building 32 with the GES DISC, will conduct a session entitled Pathways for Discovering Earth Science Data and Services using NASA's Global Change Master Directory (GCMD) on the meeting's first day.
